We are looking at implimenting WCS with a wireless controller and a few dozen 1200 series AP's. Which is the best route to go Linux or Windows for WCS? Is there any real differance in functionality between the two? I am leaning towards linux for it higher stability, but have more experience runnign windows.
If you're willing to gain more experience/exposure with Linux, I recommend that route... You get the opportunity for a cleaner environment (as indicated in another post) and as a result, I believe a more responsive service since you can eliminate unneeded processes such as the graphical services (speaking of the X Server on the WCS host) - but still run graphical client software for remote display (say to your desktop), if needed.
Thanks for the information, I think I am going to go the Linux route. What is the cheapest way to buy the Enterprise version of Red Hat for use with WCS? I see on Red Hats site they have many options with various support from Red Hat, is there a way to buy just the software without the support from red hat?
